Thanks very much for the kinds words. It is always great to hear that my guests love the Marbella Surf Inn as much as I do. Always look forward to seeing return customers as well and spending sometime catching up on world events.
My wife and I just returned from celebrating our 25th anniversary in Costa Rica, and were lucky enough to have spent a few days at the Marbella Surf Inn. The setting is amazing amidst the natural beauty of the countryside and just a short walk...More

Easy walk to stunning black sand beaches. But the best part, was sharing the company of new owners Marne and Darcy. Anything we needed, they were there to assist. We stayed over Christmas and Marbella Surf Inn was the life and energy of the holiday...More

Thank you so much for putting the review on TripAdvisor - much appreciated. It was great to see people from Colorado (our home state in the USA) here in Costa Rica. We hope to see you guys back here at some stage.
I stayed for five days and my family loved it. What a great service from the employees and the owners. Close to many beaches, nice rooms and beautiful pool. Playa Marbella is wonderful with great surfing. We will definitely go back.

Yes all shuttles will take you from Liberia Airport to Marbella. Cost is about $120. There is public transport that picks up at the southend of the airport (Pampa Lines) and go to Santa Cruz about every 30 minutes. The last bus from Santa Cruz is at 4pm for Marbella and it takes about an hour by bus from the airport to Santa Cruz. Trip from Santa Cruz to Marbella is about 1.5 hours. You will have to change bus stations in Stanta Cruz because the bus that brings you in will be at the stations that serves Liberia and Nicoya. The bus driver can direct you or right outside the bus terminal take a cab for $1. The 2 terminals are on opposite ends of town.
There is a ZIP Line at Rio Seco about 20 mins north and one at Nosara about 30 mins south. Both are very good ZIPS. Rio Seco costs about $55 and Nosara $75 for about a 2 hour adventure ZIP through the forest canopy.
If you like to hike there are lots of walks along the beach here. I have had clients hike from Playa Marbella to Playa San Jaunillo to the south and from Playa Marbella to Playa Logarto. There are great hikes along the small inland roads as well. The area is very much a natures paradise with lots of Howlers to see and hear on the hikes.
There is horseback and ATV adventures about 5 mins from the hotel.
Transport from the hotel to these is free and I can line these up for you.
